are you intending to setup a cluster to achieve automatic failover?

note: standard edition does not support clustering.

what type of data/applications do you intend to protect and perform failover?
you may have to opt for third-party high-availability software like Xosoft.

The servers will host their main program Business Craft and HMail server. I just need a solution so if one server fails, the other one will be a duplicate to keep them running.

Hey,

Just to reiterate what "itprotocall" said, if your building a multinode cluster you need to use Server 2003 Enterprise or Data-Center Edition.
Some SAN storage would be useful too.

Cheers

Michael
